Notting Hill Gate Carnival 2006/2007

Track 1 'hard work' is an edited mix of a conversation with Brazilian artist Giacomo Picca on his experience of joining one of the Notting Hill Carnival clubs. Tracks 2-4 capture a brief conversation with Patricia late in the evening of Carnival Monday 2007. Patricia is 'The Costume' at Yaa Asentewaa Arts Club in Notting Hill Gate - thus, the place of passion and exhaustion from which she speaks. That night, Terry and I were following up on our video and audio recordings from last year's carnival which have since become a 5:04mins movie entitled 'Monday'. I had encountered the Yaa Asentewaa by chance in their preparations for Mass in 2006, and spent most of the day with them growing very fond of what I was lucky to witness. The audio edits (tracks 5-10) and our joint movie 'Monday are a record of our admiration for the Yaa people and their work, and of our pleasure joining them for the day. Terry an I had to adjust our ideas of the Notting Hill Carnival and were delighted to do so: it's alive and well, in touch with people here and now, and with its history, and true to its founding mothers certainly, as long as there're people like the Yaa around and as long as the carnival is out there in the streets of Notting Hill Gate.
